Neve Campbell will return for ‘Scream 7’; salary dispute is apparently history

Los Angeles — The original “Scream” queen is back – Neve Campbell announced Tuesday she’d be returning to the franchise for the upcoming seventh film.

“Sidney Prescott is coming back!!!!” Campbell posted on Instagram. “It’s always been such a blast and an honor to get to play Sidney in the Scream movies. My appreciation for these films and for what they have meant to me, has never waned. I’m very happy and proud to say I’ve been asked, in the most respectful way, to bring Sidney back to the screen and I couldn’t be more thrilled!!!”

Neve Campbell attends the "Swan Song" premiere during the 2023 Toronto International Film Festival at Roy Thomson Hall on September 09, 2023 in Toronto, Ontario.

Campbell previously passed on reprising her role as final girl Sidney Prescott in the franchise’s sixth film, citing a pay dispute.

“Sadly, I won’t be making the next Scream film,” the actor said in the summer of 2022.

“As a woman I have had to work extremely hard in my career to establish my value, especially when it comes to Scream,” the actor said in a statement obtained by The Times. “I felt the offer that was presented to me did not equate to the value I have brought to the franchise.”
